in the immigration reform either. no president obama stirred up a little dust up here with what he said about football. he gave an interview the other day to the new republic. the new republic by the way is under new ownership, ironed franklin forr back and they got a one on one interview with president obama, actually, it was two on one, two of their guys with president obama in the oval office and among other things, they asked him about the nfl and the violence in professional football and college football, and was he concerned about that. you know, the president is a huge sports fan. he is a huge football fan and he told the new republic, quote, i am a big football fan, but i have to tell you, if i had a son, i would have to think long and hard before i let him plays football. he continued, and i think those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to reduce some of the violence. well, if i had a son, he said i would have to think long and hard about letting him play football. that stirred up

the world. >>> president obama also on the road today to embrace a newly unveiled plan to reform immigration laws. the proposal would give millions of undocumented workers a chance to stay in the united states legally, but just as notably it has the backing of both republicans and democrats at least for now. white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us live. is the senate proposal everything the president wanted? >> reporter: i'm sure it's not exactly everything he would want, carol, that if you were able to write his own bill that it would be exactly identical to this but that doesn't mean that it isn't palatable and the white house right now is welcoming the fact this bipartisan proposal is out there, if not endorsing it because they aren't at this point. the hottest button issue traditionally when dealing with immigration reform is how do you deal with the undocumented immigrants who are already in the country, millions of them, and so when you think about it, it wouldn't be surprising that any sort of proposal that deals with this, that has the sign-on of some republicans that it mi
,944. connell: getting close. thank you. president obama getting set to unveil his plan for immigration reform. he will have that later in the day from las vegas. haley barbour joins us now. the politics of this have been really talked about a lot. in fact, we talked about it earlier this hour. let me start with the economics of immigration reform. a number of ceos have told us that they would like to see this in the perspective of, hey, let's get some highly skilled immigrants in here that will help the economy. that will help us to get us turned around. your views are what? >> there is no question if we follow what is good economic policy for america we will have immigration reform. it will allow more skilled and unskilled foreign workers to come into the united states. we need the labor. if you look at the labor participation rate in the united states, it is almost at a record low for the percentage of adults who are actually working or trying to get a job. only about 58%. if you are going to grow your economy, you have to have enough workers and we do not right now. connell: we are behind
correspondent peter alexander has our report from las vegas. >> reporter: the first trip of president obama's second term had the energy of a campaign event. vis issing this high school to build support for immigration reform. >> now is the time to find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants that still see america as the land of opportunity. >> reporter: the president's plan calls for bolstering border security, cracking down on employers hiring undocumented workers, and most controversially allowing 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the u.s. to earn citizenship by paying taxes and passing a background check, among other requirements. >> this is not just a debate about policy, it is about people. >> reporter: mr. obama described a similar bipartisan plan in the senate as encouraging, but republicans are also warning the president that there are limits to their willingness to compromise. >> if this endeavor becomes a bidding war to see who can come up with the easiest, quickest pathway to green card possible, this won't go well, folks. >> reporter: after winning
and presidents. just look at how fast immigration reform went back on the front burner after president obama won more than 70% of the hispanic vote in november. as we speak, the president is en route to nevada. a state that he carried by more than six points over mitt romney despite an imploding economy there. any guesses who kept that state blue? the president is pitching a comprehensive immigration rewrite that may sound a lot like the senate plan that was unveiled yesterday. however, it will not sound identical. cnn's brianna keilar joins me from the white house now. so will the president propose something completely different than what the senate has already done, and is there a risk of confusing everyone? >> reporter: no, i don't think he'll propose something entirely different from what the senate has done. so far, ashleigh, the white house is welcoming the senate plan. we're expecting that the president will highlight a proposal that's actually been out for almost two years at this point. his blueprint for immigration reform. but when it was put out in 2011, it was seen much more as a sta
common ground. president obama has made immigration reform a top priority. it is my top priority. i am committed to getting this bipartisan issue that we now have before us over the finish line. poll after poll shows americans, democrats, republicans, and support ours solution. and a president who is eager to solve this problem. there is no reason you should not get this done as soon as possible. our economy requires a solution. families across america are praying for a solution. that is the truth. >> thank you. since we came to the senate, 16 years ago, i have been working on the immigration issue. i have never felt more positive about the prospects of immigration reform than i do today. some significant things have occurred right here in this room this week. a bipartisan group of senators, my colleague, senator mccain, as well as two others in support, they have all step forward with a set of principles we think will guide us to fixing this broken immigration system and america. you are not privy to what is going on in " -- behind closed doors. i have been heartened. we tackled sever
down here in washington. a lovely sight for those of us who like snow. i do. president obama begins the push for immigration reform in las vegas next week. lisa sylvester is monitoring that. the other top stories in "the situation room," what's the latest, lisa? >> aids to the president said they will sketch out his plans and improving border security in cracking down on employers who hire undocumented workers. the most controversial part of the plan is creating a passion way to citizenship for illegal immigrants. he is expected to get more specifics in the state of the union address. a cia officer will spend 30 months in proven for revealing the identity of an agent. his own attorney admitted he was thoughtless in leaking the administration. that was betraying a solemn trust. mitt romney is in washington for the first time since last month's lunch. he and his wife are expected to attend the dinner by power brokers and business elite. president obama was at the dinner in 2009 and last year, but not clear if the president will be there tomorrow. he will receive the ipod award on may
was interested in 2011, almost got a deal with speaker john boehner on a grand bargain on entitlement reform, crafting a budget now. i don't think you're going to see major cuts in that. it's a significant shift. remember, obama said the deficit kept his awake in the first term. through his actions, you know, he's not pursuing a lot of cuts and changes to entitlements. liz: what is feasible for the president to get through with a window of 16 months? gun control? what do you think he can push through successfully? >> well, i think he will try to push through gun control, and they are starting right away, and i know biden is in virginia trying to sell the plan, but i think that what's clear is that the president's agenda and the american people's agenda are different. it's expwressing to see that the president is tackling those issues that are at the very bottom of the public's priorities. climate change, gun control, and even infrastructure. these are not changes that the american public wants. they are asking for real economic growth, job creation, tackling the budget in a sensible way beca

obama is wasting no time to push his message when it comes to reform. are you surprised how fast these conversations are happening? >>. no because republicans have a vested interest. in their examination trying to reach out to latino voters, this has been a good way do that. the republican party ride to take on before under president bush and they were unsuccessful. they're really speaking constructively, democrats and republicans together. it doesn't mean that the legislation is going to happen because there's still a question of what you do with illegal immigrants who are here now. dhou they go to the back of line as it were. do they have to leave the country? there are difficult elements to it. i think it's something that is going to be an area of bipartisan. >> wanted to ask you about democratic and republican shifting. senator tom harkin announcing he will not seek reelection is a bit of a surprise, the head of an influential committee. then you have paul ryan, who is going to be your exclusive guest. if there was one lesson approximate this election, wasn't it that republic
carolina's lindsey graham, marco rubio of florida and jeff flake of arizona. this comes as president obama flies to las vegas to outline his vision for immigration. senator durbin says immigration reform, a comprehensive plan is long overdue. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with. we've virtually going for 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that is unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> reporter: the plan also calls for easier entry for immigrants who have math, science and engineering skills. bill? bill: there is a lot of politics laced to this entire issue. how do the politics figure into this proposal, steve? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fastest growing minority group in the u.s. senator john mccain acknowledged that reality yesterday. >> give y
with that strategy or you think there is something to it? >> i don't think we've seen any indication president obama plans on not governing for the first two years of the administration. i think the ideas we saw come out, talk about gun violence prevention, comprehensive immigration reform, climate control, these are things that the american people want. we've been talking about for the last --. bill: but you don't even know if that can pass through even the democratic senate. >> right. >> no, sure but these are the issues we need to be talking about and we ned everyone at the table. these ideas have traditionally come, we found compromises from both parties and we do need to be able to come back to those again. it is unfortunate the last congress speaker boehner had his hands tied by very extreme parties of his party. i had real hopes that speaker boehner would be able to come back to the table and i actually still think he would be able to. bill: three days in, here we are, we are 72 hours warm. got to run, monica, quick last word. >> i could see why the left think ideas of limited government, fis
dedicated to reforming immigration. let's go to the phones. caller: good morning. i would like to set the record straight. there are not 11 million illegal aliens in this country. there were more like 26 million. obama wants to extend the invitation to come there to these people's families. we could end up with 35 million people. 70% of the people are from mexico and south america. this is why obama was able to get back in as president. we should not be in a position where one ethnic group is able to determine the outcome of election. 47% of these people are receiving some form of public assistance. host: we will get a response from secretary gutierrez. guest: i don't know what the source of your numbers are. i have never heard those numbers. they sound incredibly inflated. the thing about immigration that we should think about is that the reason we have undocumented workers in the country is that our laws are dysfunctional. if businesses cannot hire a worker with documentation, either they go out of business or they hire whoever they can. these folks have come to the u.s. because the
